Wild Place is Jack's first release since 2019's Ivory Towers and the first full albumrelease since his acclaimed debut, Dreamcatcher, which entered the Irish Top 5. In theintervening years Jack has established himself as one of Ireland's finest songsmiths anda live favourite.

For the recording of Wild Place, during lockdown, Jack and his band based themselvesin Triskel Christchurch in Cork and used the wonderful acoustics and Triskel's grandpiano to great effect. The results are probably Jack's most endearing work to date - thesongs emanating from a soulful and folk-inspired place.

Jack first came to prominence with his ode to misunderstood youth and growing up gay,‘Silence’, became a torch song for the Irish Marriage Equality Referendum and won theNashville Songwriting Competition (judges included Tom Waits and Bill Withers).Chosen as a 2019 headliner for Other Voices, Jack was featured prominently in thetelevision series (most recently part of the Home special in December, featuring himself.Loah, Villagers and Denise Chaila) and his collaboration, 'New Day' with electronicartist, Kormac, has nearly 500,000 views for its award winning music video.
